Debra Burgin 2013 PIFH #2I know you’re thinking “chocolates,” but you’d be wrong in this case.  Because this is empty!  I sacrificed the three chocolates inside so there would be room for something else, like a gift card to Barnes & Noble or

You’ve seen these boxes elsewhere, I’m sure, but I took the easy route:  I bought a heart-shaped box of chocolates and just covered it instead of making the box from scratch.  The Stampin’ Up! Multipurpose Liquid Glue adhered the big red hearts perfectly, even to the shiny box.  The main element on this is almost the same as the Herringbone Heart I showed you Monday.  I added some piercing to the white mat.

We’ll be making this project at the Pay-It-Forward House event Saturday.  What the stampers do with their chocolates is their business, right?

    Great idea! I received on of those boxes this week and it had a darling Bernese puppy on the front. Yes, the chocolates were very good.
